An innovative company in Dickson is set to benefit from a $276,956 share in $3.5 million of Australian Government’s Accelerating Commercialisation (AC) grants.
Technobake from Whiteside has been offered an AC grant to develop a commercial pocket-bread baking machine for the high-volume food-retailing sector.
This innovative pocket-bread baking machine will provide supermarkets with a high-volume, energy efficient, machine capable of being safely operated by a single person in the front-of-store environment where customers can witness the theatre of bread baking in real time.
Accelerating Commercialisation support will help Technobake commercialise the DoughRunner pocket-bread baking machine both domestically and internationally. The project will take place in Brendale.
Federal Member for Dickson Peter Dutton congratulated Technobake on creating the DoughRunner and receiving the grant.
“Congratulations to Technobake on creating the DoughRunner. This is a fantastic idea and shows the ingenuity of people in our local area,” Mr Dutton said.
“It is great to see an exciting new product like the DoughRunner conceived and developed from its infancy right through to production here in Dickson.”
“The Accelerating Commercialisation grants help small businesses unlock their potential and encourage growth and I’m proud that a business in our local area has been recognised.”
To date, Australian Businesses have received 335 grants worth more than $166 million to commercialise ground-breaking technologies through the AC grants program.
Accelerating Commercialisation grant applications can be lodged at any time. The grants consist of matched funding of up to $1 million to cover eligible commercialisation costs and help companies take their products to market.
